……because I am totally hooked on the London 2012 Olympics.
Usually I am a total sportphobe, I find any kind of competitiveness, distasteful and cannot stand the sound of sport commentary.
I tried to time my last Paris trip so I would be out of the country,because I have been dreading this for years.
Of course I mistimed the trip and am in the UK during the 2012 Olympics.
So I decided that as there would be media overkill and I couldn’t escape, I would embrace it and take an interest.
WOW! what a change. I can’t wait to get home to see the next chapter of the story. I have got to know all the characters and from gymnastics to cycling to rowing to swimming judo and shooting, I have bit my lip, shouted and cheered, team GB and cried tears of joy and disappointment for the competitors form all countries.
Today we have won three gold medals for rowing and cycling and bronze for judo, swimming and rowing
Now the athletics is starting.!
